Capital for Property and Technology
Capital for Property and Technology
I have been involved in venture capital, financing and commercialisation of technology for approximately 25 years. Whilst operating predominantly in New Zealand and Australia I have also conducted business in Russia, Romania and several other eastern bloc countries as well as the United Kingdom and the USA.
I have participated in Joint Ventures that have included the Bank of Reconstruction and Development as well as the World Bank. In essence, both as a lender and facilitator, I have raised several billion of capital for a wide array of projects, industries and technologies. I have owned an array of private companies and have been commercialising technology for approximately 20 years. I’ve also been the principal shareholder and CEO of listed companies.
I am particularly passionate about the commercialisation of technology and all aspects that make up that challenging journey.
Like many things in life it’s all about timing, the right capital, the right technology and most importantly, the right people who are driven and adequately motivated. In essence co-ordinating those factors is really what it’s all about, and what I’m particularly interested in is bringing about practical results taking concept to commercial reality.
As such I participate and orchestrate the following:
Over my 25 years in commerce I have met an extremely wide array of inventors, developers and geniuses from one extreme to another.
It would seem to me that many things in life do not change. A great deal in life is about timing, people, capital and identifying technology solutions that fit in with social dynamics and demands.
Some of the fundamentals do not change just the People, Technology and Social Dynamics.

I provide and facilitate capital in order to commercialise technology projects.
I invest capital and time in projects and people who justify capital and time.
Worthwhile projects require capital in order to take the project to fruition.
I can guide you with preparation of strategy papers and a business plan, including:
The biggest challenge in commercialising technology and capitalising the same tends to be timing, social and technological, together with the agendas and capabilities of the entrepreneurs concerned. However, in essence it’s all about the right people, the right technology at the right time. Other than that, it’s about lining up a few stars; 99% of successful ventures have vastly depended on a well-considered Execution Plan and actual execution, which is where the majority of entrepreneurs falter. Accordingly, successful outcomes become an equilibrium of planning, research, a driven team, expert advice, well considered strategies and minute detail of execution.
For property developers I mainly provide equity; funding predominantly follows good people with adequate equity. I can provide equity, combined with prime debt packages, private capital, true equity, or subordinated debt for small and large sub-divisions, office towers, hotels, resorts and student accommodation and of course, apartment developments.
To date I have funded office towers, hotels, resorts, golf courses, rest homes, hospitals, sub-divisions, apartment developments and student accommodation.
Experience has taught me that adequate private equity is the key to unlocking property. Once you have sufficient equity combined with competence, the funding will follow. Accordingly, I have access to a wide array of private capital.
Typically, a developer has identified an opportunity but frequently has inadequate equity or has an insufficient deposit and often needs assistance in putting together the capital structure.
I provide creative prudential solutions, combining equity and debt to take your project to a profitable conclusion.
I can assist business owners in your equity and capital requirements.
I provide funding solutions for small to medium companies that require capital, or a combination of equity and debt as required. I am also an investor, either in property or technology related projects.
Upon evaluation, I may be able to provide guidance on equity or private investment into your company. I am also in a position to provide preparation for a trade sale or IPO to optimize an exit. Formulation of strategies to prepare your business either for sale or to be investor ready are a vital aspect that will greatly enhance the financial outcomes.
